Mark Cuban Trolls Trump HARD On Twitter And It Is A Beautiful Thing (TWEETS)

It’s no secret that real billionaire Mark Cuban isn’t a fan of billionaire-of-questionable-authenticity Donald Trump. And in recent weeks the owner of the Dallas Mavericks has been hitting the Republican nominee hard. The latest of those punches came on Friday, when Cuban released a series of tweets, offering Trump $10 million dollars if Cuban could interview him on policy for four hours.

Apparently, the idea came to Cuban after Trump told Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo that Cuban “is not smart enough” to understand his economic plan.

At about the same time Trump was scamming the media into providing free advertising for his newest hotel, Cuban offered his deal. Originally he told Trump he would donate $10 million to the candidate’s favorite charity in return for the interview.

In the tweets following that one, Cuban laid out the ground rules for the conversation.

Then the Shark Tank star had a better idea. Knowing how much Trump loves his money, Cuban dropped the notion of a charity donation and told Trump he could keep the $10 million himself.

Cuban ended the twitter storm by quoting The Donald directly.

When Trump first became a candidate, Cuban thought it was a positive thing. But as he told Bloomberg Businessweek via an email interview, phone and email conversations with Trump soured him on the GOP hopeful.

“In those conversations, I was clear to Donald that I didn’t agree with most of what he said. I also got the chance to ask him some poignant questions along the way that I think were very telling. I asked him if he realized that the job would entail making decisions that could lead to the death of our service people. I asked him about going to small businesses so he could connect and show people his business skills. I’m not going to share his responses, but I learned more about him from those responses.”

Cuban, like many others, says he expected Trump to become more “businesslike” after winning the Republican nomination, and that he would begin to add substance to his proposals. When that didn’t happen, Cuban, who in his own words says he has “never actively supported any candidate,” decided to endorse Hillary Clinton.

“I did quite a bit of homework to understand all the allegations that were directed toward her and found almost all not based on fact and the remainder far from material. The tipping issues were Trump’s positions on NATO, our treaties, dealing with our allies, his comments on nuclear weapons, and his lack of understanding of the concept of deterrence. His ignorance of these issues scared the shit out of me.”

So now Cuban wants to give Trump a chance to sit with him and explain in detail his specific ideas for “making America great again.” It won’t happen, but it could certainly be an interesting conversation, as well as the genesis of a new drinking game. Every time Trump says “great,” “wonderful,” or “believe me,” you have to take a drink. But that would be a terrible way to watch the interview — you would probably be comatose within the first half hour.
